In just three weeks, I will be heading to Amsterdam with the world-renowned Viking River Cruises to Christen and launch two of the six new Viking Longships scheduled to debut this year! My particular journey will take me on board the “Viking Odin,” named after the mighty warrior in Norse mythology. To say I am excited would be understatement of the year. Actually, I am thrilled beyond words and if you know me, you have a sense of the elation coursing through my being—testament to my undeniable exuberance to travel and explore places and cultures unfamiliar. Plus, I have wanted to experience a Viking River Cruise for the last two years and still can’t believe this opportunity is upon me. Big adventures await as well as all the updates of my journey including stunning photography of every stop along the way. But first, need to get things in order: camera, calling cards, my iPad of course for impromptu videos and stills, luggage, passport and so much more! The adventure begins!
